The Juba International Airport does not fit the name. I mean if you pass through it, there is nothing that "shows" it is international from the appearance. It looks horribly like any other local airport.
That should not be the case. Juba International Airport is truely international. Being the main hub in South Sudan, it is now the major route into the country. Juba is now receiving flights directly from Dubai, Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Entebbe and as far South as South Africa.
The expansion is not for the runway, for it is large enough to land jumbo 747. It had been initially expanded by the French Company CCI in early eighties. They have to abandon the completion because of the war. I believe it is time they return to complete the job.
I am talking about the lounge. The arrival and departures are horridly small. There are not not enough room in there. They need to build a new terminal with modern equipments and proper luggage handling services. For the new face of South Sudan, the airport must too reflect the new emergence of the country.
